Question about Apple iPod nano 8 GB Pink (3rd Generation) (MB453ZP/A)

1 Answer

Synch problem When I plug my ipod into my computer, Itunes locks up. When I disconnect from the ipod from the port, Itunes works again but a message pops up that say "The ipod "Brad...ipod's" cannot be synched. The required folder cannot be found." I've tried everything. I've even uninstalled itunes and put back on. My wife's ipod still will synch to my itunes so I know it's a problem with my actual ipod. I have no idea what to do and need help. My ipod works fine otherwise. I just cannot add or delete any music to it now since it does not allow me to synch up anymore.

Ipod disabled connect to itunes


Hi dimitri77
If you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one IPod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data.

the only thing I could think of is put the ipod in DFU mode,Turn off the ipod and plug it into the computer and open itunes. hold the sleep/wake button (top button) and the home button(bottom button) for 10 seconds. When you count to 10 release the top sleep/wake button and continue holding the home button for 10 seconds. after about 6-10 seconds an itunes error message should pop up saying there is an ipod in DFU mode would you like to restore it. Thats the only way i could think about it.

How do i sync ipod with computer or laptop as i have now been trying for 3 hours with no success


Hi,

How to Sync an Ipod to Your Computer


Things You'll Need:

* IPod
* IPod USB that came with iPod
* Computer
* ITunes
* Mouse

So, you've bought an iPod and are super excited about putting your music on it so you can listen on the go, but you don't know how to start. First you have to figure out how to get your songs to your iPod, then you can listen to your heart's content.

This How To will tell you how you can get moving to the beats sooner than later.

Be sure your iPod is not on "hold". Move the bar at the top of the iPod from hold (at right) to manage or release (at left)

Press the center button on your iPod to turn the iPod on

Connect the flatter, wider connecting piece to the opening on the bottom of your iPod (This may have a minus sign on it)

Connect the USB side of the cord (this piece has what looks like a cactus on it) to the USB port in your computer

ITunes will automatically open. Click on the image of your iPod (at left). This will open your settings for whenever you connect your iPod to the computer.

Initially, it may be easiest to let it automatically update your iPod. A screen will come up to ask you if you would like to automatically sync your iPod. Click "YES".

ITunes will do the rest. The top window will show the progress of the data transfer.
DO NOT disconnect your iPod.

Once the window says "Update Complete", eject your iPod to safely remove it from the computer by dragging the image or icon of the ipod on your computer to the trash (which will change into an eject symbol), or clicking on the eject symbol next to the iPod icon (at left).

Disconnect the cord from the computer and iPod

Listen to your music



Tips & Warnings

These instructions are most useful if you have already installed iTunes and charged you iPod prior to connecting it to your computer.

Do not disconnect your iPod until it says "iPod Update Complete" at the top of the iTunes screen.


Also

I faced the same problem. In fact, you can use an ipod to computer transfer program to help.I personally use Cucusoft iPhone/iTouch/iPod to Computer Transfer.It helps me to transfer my songs/videos/photos/playlists etc from ipod to my new computer directly and safely.It works well for me,you can give it a try.

It even has step-by-step guide on the whole process.

I reset the Ipod and it still has a white screen saying ok to disconnect. What do I do now?


Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the software just hanged-up on you. Try to reset the Ipod by following the procedures below.

1st option:
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.

2nd option (Disk Mode):
Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).
Note: Do not disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

Thanks

How do you unlock an ipod?


basically you need to remember the password. If it is not locked using a password make sure the slide switch is not in the lock/hold position (on select models and generations). If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with
which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device
(or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the
device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not
be present Follow the steps that i have outlined below. If this does not completely help your situation please
let me know and i will be glad to assist you. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following: 1 If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage
its songs. . . Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. 2 Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. 3 Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC. 4 Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. 5 Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. 6 Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. 7 Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal features
again. if that does not work you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note
that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod. If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this: 1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data. 2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. 3. Open iTunes and synchronize. Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination.
If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is
to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data." If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to
assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment. thanks and have a great day.

Ipod wont work


If it is under warranty still retrieve the serial number from the back of the iPod and call Apple to setup an appointment at your nearest Apple store to save you time. They only take appointments now that I know of.
If by resetting you mean by:
Holding down menu & play/pause?
If that doesn't work plug it into the computer, make sure you have iTunes installed and then try restoring it. And if THAT doesn't work, make sure you have the lastest iTunes, and firmware. Sometimes computers are a little iffy, if the connection noise is present and disconnected it could be the USB port. Sometimes on my phone/mp3 players it'll do that and they only liked to be plugged back into the same original port the USB driver was installed on. So if you plugged it through the front when it was working try that.

Ipod touch 32G 3rd gen is not recognised by windows when i plug it in windows gives message, USB Device Not Recognized


Its a little lengthy but worth the read:

First, make sure your iPod is fully charged and then toggle the Hold switch on and off.
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Go through the 5 R's of iPod troubleshooting, which will often solve your issue. If you're still experiencing the issue after going through each of the steps, then continue for more suggestions.
To determine if your iPod syncs via USB or FireWire, check the table in the Additional Information section below.
Tip: If you are using Windows XP and have recently installed a Service Pack, check the Device Manager. Click the Start menu and click Run. Type “devmgmt.msc” and click OK. If no devices appear in the Windows Device Manager, go here.
Still can't see your iPod?
Several things could keep iPod from appearing in iTunes or Windows Explorer. The most likely causes are listed below—you'll find information for both USB and FireWire (IEEE 1394) iPod connections. Check each one starting from the top of the list to see if that is what's keeping iPod from appearing.
Make sure your computer meets the iPod system requirements
Make sure that your computer meets the system requirements to use iPod with Windows.
If your iPod displays an exclamation point folder or sad iPod icon
If your iPod displays a folder with an exclamation point icon or a sad (unhappy) iPod icon on its screen, or if your iPod doesn't appear in iTunes or My Computer, follow these instructions to resolve the issue.
Charge the iPod and make sure it is getting power
Your iPod must have enough of a charge for your computer to recognize it. Connect your iPod to its power adapter or to a high-power port on your computer to charge your iPod if the battery is depleted. If your iPod is connected through FireWire but isn't getting power from the FireWire bus, your computer may not recognize it.
Secure the iPod's connections
Make sure that there is nothing physically inside or blocking your computer's USB (or FireWire) port, and that the cable connections to your iPod and computer are secure.
Note: If you're using an iPod shuffle (Second Generation), make sure the iPod is inserted securely in the iPod shuffle Dock.
Restart your computer
Sometimes simply restarting your computer can resolve issues.
Connect iPod to a high-powered USB port
If you're connecting an iPod, iPod mini, or iPod shuffle to your Windows computer, make sure that you're connecting it to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer.
If you're connecting the iPod to a Windows laptop computer through USB, connect the laptop to a power outlet before connecting your iPod. Also, see iPod not recognized when connected to Windows laptop over USB to be sure that your USB ports are supplying enough power.
Typically, USB 2.0 high-power ports are located directly on your computer. Try connecting your iPod to another USB port on the computer.
Avoid connecting the iPod to a USB hub. Connect the iPod directly to a USB 2.0 port on the computer. If a hub must be used, make sure the hub is USB 2.0, and that it has its own power supply. Also, make sure the hub is connected to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer.
If the issue persists, try disconnecting other USB devices from the computer such as printers, cameras, scanners, external hard drives, and USB hubs to determine if there is a conflict in the USB chain.
Check whether your iPod's cable functions properly
Make sure that you are using the cable that came with your iPod. Some third-party cables may not work properly with iPod.
Make sure that nothing is in or blocking your computer's USB or FireWire port.
Check the connections to make sure that the cable is completely plugged in.
Try another known-good FireWire or USB through Dock Connector cable if available.
If swapping out your old cable for another resolves the issue, then your original cable should be replaced.
Place the iPod into Disk Mode
Try placing the iPod into disk mode to see if it is recognized by iTunes, or My Computer.
Check which format iPod is in
iTunes for Windows only recognizes Windows-formatted iPods. You cannot use a Macintosh-formatted iPod with a Windows PC. To learn for which platform your iPod is formatted, follow these instructions.
Check whether your computer's port functions properly
If another FireWire or USB port is available on your computer, try connecting your iPod to it.
If your computer recognizes your iPod after trying a different port, the original port could be faulty.
Note: iPod will not automatically wake up if you connect it to a 4-pin FireWire port. You must press the Select button (the wheel's center button) on the iPod to wake it from sleep.
Check if Windows confuses iPod with network drive
If the drive letter after iPod ("E" in most cases) is mapped to a network drive, both Windows Explorer and iTunes may exhibit strange behavior in relation to the iPod (including preventing iPod from appearing. See "Windows confuses iPod with network drive and may keep iPod from mounting or songs may seem to disappear" for more information.
Your USB or FireWire card isn't recognized by Windows
Make sure that Windows recognizes your USB or FireWire card. Follow these steps to find out if Windows sees your card.
Third-party software may be causing conflicts
Some third-party software (such as security software) may prevent your computer from recognizing your iPod.
Try adjusting the settings of such software, or temporarily disabling it, to see if that resolves the issue.
Also, try booting Windows to Selective Startup mode to disable any third-party startup programs and services, and isolate which software may be causing the issue.
Install or reinstall iTunes
Download and install the latest version of iTunes.
In some cases, you may need to completely uninstall and reinstall iTunes.
Make sure FireWire card is a WHQL-certified IEEE 1394 card
Only certain iPod models sync via FireWire. Refer to the table in the Additional Information section to make sure your iPod can sync via FireWire.
If you have a FireWire (IEEE 1394) card installed in your computer and are using it to connect your iPod, make sure that the card is Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) certified. If it isn't, your iPod may not be recognized, or you may not be able to send music to the iPod.
If you're not sure about your card's WHQL certification, check the inbox material that came with your FireWire card or contact the card's manufacturer. You can view a list of WHQL-certified cards on the Windows Hardware Compatibility List website. To view this:
Go to the Windows Hardware Compatibility List website.
Click on the link that corresponds with your Windows Operating System to view the compatibility list.
Select your Operating System build, and then from the Product Categories pop-up menu, choose 1394 Controller.
Click the Search Now button.
You can also check the list of recommended FireWire and USB cards that have been tested by Apple with iPod and Windows XP (Apple sells FireWire cards that are compatible with iPod at the Apple Store.).
To rule out an issue with your FireWire card, try connecting a different FireWire device to the card to see if your computer recognizes it.
Check for a conflict in the FireWire chain
Only certain iPod models sync via FireWire. Refer to the table in the Additional Information section to make sure your iPod can sync via FireWire.
Your computer may not recognize your iPod if there's a device conflict in the FireWire chain. To see if this is the case:
Disconnect all devices from your computer's FireWire ports.
Connect your iPod to your computer's FireWire port.
If your computer recognizes your iPod, you should troubleshoot for FireWire device conflicts.
There may be an issue with your computer
If another computer is available, verify that the same issues happen with the other computer. If the other computer recognizes your iPod, you may want to troubleshoot for issues with your original computer.
Your iPod needs service
If after following these steps your computer still doesn't recognize iPod, see the iPod Service website to arrange for service.

My ipod wont eject from my computer


What do you do? You click “Eject.” What happens? A message saying something to the effect that your iPod can’t disconnect because files on your iPod are currently being used. What happens next? You keep clicking “Eject” over and over again, of course. Still nothing. Same result.
Here’s the solution.
Open up “My Computer” (for Vista users, that’s “Computer”) and look for your iPod in the list of drives and removable storage. Right-click on it and click “Eject!” And there you go. Ejected iPod. Don’t believe me? Just go back to iTunes and see that you’ve been ejected.

IPod froze up


Have you attempted to reset the iPod yet? If so and it failed you should attempt to force the ipod into disc mode and restore using iTunes. Below is a step by step on all three parts of the resolution. If for any reason your issue is not resolved after completing; please do let me know. :)

Learning how to reset or restart iPod following a freeze.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

---------------------------------------------------

Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod. The screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center. --------------------------------------------------


After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option

1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option

2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option

3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option

4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Theres a few things you can do. Sounds like to me......1. remove ipod support and itunes and reinstall it. completely turn the computer off after each process. Then plug it in and let itunes recognize it, and see if it works. Before you do this try changing your settings. You can go and change settings to default. If that doesnt work COMPLETELY restore your ipod and reinstall ipod support and itunes and that will work for sure.
